The Western league, will dispute ,the right of the newly organized Arkoma league to the Tul sa and Oklahoma City base ball ter ritory and it is understood President E. W. Dickerson has been ordered to file a claim for the territory with Secretary John H. Farrell of the Na tional Association of Professional Base Baft leagues. As soon as news that, the Arkoma league hai been formed was received tfr Western league headquarters here the magnates of the old circuit got busy and President Dickerson, who is in Grand Rapids, was instructed to lie a claim for the territory. . ' The Western league bases its claim to Tulsa and Oklahoma City on the fact '.that Dickerson is supposed to have previously, filed claim for the territory in the event that the West ern association decided to throw up ".he sponge. Although the Arkoma league has been formed by men formerly inter ested in one way or another in the Western association, still the mag nates of Dickerson's circuit claim that when the Western association voted lo give up any towns that desired to enter another circuit it threw the ter ritory openN and that the Western league had first call to the two Okla homa tities and has the right to ac cept or reject the territory before the new Arkoma league can take posses sion. :'',';'" ."

For the Omaha-Chicago railroads he government has dorje exactly the thing that it has prohibited them from doing. It is letting them, or rather, is forcing them, to pool on the handling of meat trains out of Omaha to the cast. y ' - . Heretofore the six Omana-Chicago roads have been running 12 meat trains to the east daily, or rather, two over each of the roads. Under the pooling plan adopted by the govern ment railroad director general, the number has been reduced to two, 10 having been eliminated. Under the old plan for handling meat to the east, each Omaha-Chicago line sent out a meat train each morn ing and another each afternoon. T(fey went regardless of whether or not they carried capacity loads. Hjht trains were not fully loaded whenThey left the Omaha yards, they were ex pected to gather up tonnage enroute. The running schedule was 27 hours lor tne ow miles. y When .Director ueneral, AicAdoo took over the operation of ahe rail roads, one the first tilings to be worked out was. a pooling plan for the handling of dressed meats from the Omaha packing houses and to the east. Now the plan has been evolved and the pool is complete, with the running time oj the trains lengthened to 42 hours between Omaha and Chi cago.

U.S. MUST SAVE GOODS TO CHECK RAISE IN PRICES - Present Financial Conditions Will Improve, According to Annual Report of Federal ; Reserve Board. " i -" ' ... Washington,. Jan. 22. Effect of credit expansion' on the general rise of prices, and te-part the American people can play; in counteracting in flation by. wartime' economies were emphasized today by the federal re serve board in its annual report to congress. , ... Explaining that even though crdit expansion is not entirely responsible for increase in prices, the board says "it .regards it as one of its most im portant duties to prevent, as far as practicable, expansion of banking credit from running an uncontrolled course. " ' y Must Save Credit. "Goods and credit," says the re port, "must be saed to the utmost of our ability, in order to check the up ward movement of prices'and ir order to free for the use of the government the goods and savings required for the winning of the war." f The prcsint condition of a greatly expanded currency will be improved, the board believes, "as the public per forms its duty of absorbing the gov ernment loans out of savings." Before the third Liberty loan, the report adds, federal reserve banks must reduce their investments to strengthen reserves and avoid further expansion that has accompanied the last two Liberty loans. : War Influenced Money Market. . Among the many radical influences of the war on the money markets the board explained that one of the most pronounced had been the effort of certain interests to have the federal resrve system absorb 90-day notes or other short term paper accepted with the privilege of repeated renewals. The board had persistently opposed any such effort to destroy liquidity of the banks' assets, on which the sys tem was based, the report said, but it admitted that the difficulties of pri vate and corporate financing was so jreat as to justify action by congress. The most serious problem, corpo rate financing, has been removed by government operation of .railroads, says the board's report, but the situa tion is still serious. , Government Must Intervene. "The board therefore respectfully suggests early-consideration by con gress of the problem of corporate fi nancing in the belief that no satisfac tory solution will be found that does not involve some degree of govern ment intervention. "The board is of the opinion that some plan for government mterven- K.'am tr A fin K wrtrlrpt mffr wtiirh would 'meet the requirements of the situation satisfactorily." ' Referring to the enormous strain on finances during the last year of the government's loans and to the aid givefl by the federal reserve system, the report says: '"The federal reserve noje will more . speedily attain the position originally intended for it from being an occasional emergency currency used to supplement deficiencies in the supply of other existing forms of cur rency, it is becoming, the most im portant constituent of our circulation medium, responding promptly and naturally to currency requirements from whatever .source proceeding, thus giving to our whole currency a kind and degree of elasticity it has never before possessed." Earnings of the 12 federal reserve banks in 1917 were-reported as $15, 800,000 gjoss and $11,200,000 net, with declared dividends of about $6,800, 000. The board's expenses have been a little less than $250,000 and the cost of administering the gold settlement fund has been only $3,500, or 1 1,-3 cents per $1,000. ' Auto Speeds On After Striking L.
